Epilepsy Lighthouse Project awarded Tech Excellence Award

26 May 2017

The Epilepsy Lighthouse Project – an RCSI led and HSE-funded project – won best IT public sector project of the year at the 2017 Tech Excellence Awards. The project is nationwide and it involves epilepsy centres across Ireland.

A collaboration between eHealth Ireland, the HSE, RCSI, Beaumont Hospital and industry partner ERGO, the Lighthouse Project entitled 'Providing Individualised Services and Care in Epilepsy' (PISCES) creates conditions for using eHealth technologies to embed genomic medicine, patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) and Clinical Analytics into the Clinical Pathway.

Core to this project is the national Epilepsy Electronic Patient Record (EPR) which is a unique system that helps drive better continuity of care for people with epilepsy in Ireland and promotes integration of healthcare services.

The Tech Excellence Awards recognises excellence not only in implementing tech solutions, but also in the business of marketing and implementing technology for business.
